Fatal Motorcycle Collisions In Texas
Although motorcycles are often considered a safe and reliable form of transportation, drivers stand very little chance against larger motor vehicles on the roadway. Every year, more than 500 motorcyclists lose their lives in Texas motorcycle accidents.
When victims lose their lives in motorcycle collisions, it is crucial for surviving family members to contact a Texas wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. Our state provides a two-year statute of limitations in which family members can file legal claims against at-fault parties. Filing a legal claim against an individual for a wrongful death enables surviving family members to collect compensation for medical and funeral expenses in some cases.
Over the years, Texas personal injury attorneys at the Benton Law Firm have helped numerous victims, and their families, get the compensation and justice they deserve from those at fault. Although dealing with the wrongful death of a loved one is extremely challenging, it is important that you do not go about it alone.
